|Lemon juice||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (mixed in 1/4 cup water)|

|Sugar syrup||4 Cup (64 tbs) (thin, flavored with cardamom)|
Method: Remove whatever cream that forms over the milk.
Bring to a boil, lower heat and add the lemon mixture gradually, till milk curdles.

Shut off the heat and leave mixture to rest for 5 minutes.
Drain off water and leave the paneer in a colander for at least 4 hours.
Mash paneer very smooth (no grains). Add the flour/semolina and mash some more.
Bring 4-6 cups of water to a boil, and shape the paneer into balls (smooth ones, no cracks) in the mean time.
Transfer balls into the boiling water, cover with a tight fitting cover and let cook till puffed up (about 20 minutes).
Let cool, squeeze out of the water, transfer to syrup, chill and serve.
